Re: [GROUP]Multilingual Short Works Collection 026 - Poetry & Prose by Various - thw

Thanks Michael. I did what you asked for in 1 & 2. Thank you, Anas! The intro/outro text sounds good. There's just one additional issue to address: please lengthen the silence at the end to ~5 seconds. It seems to have gotten lost along the way. As for 3, yes I see what you're saying with the 'a', ...

Re: [GROUP]Multilingual Short Works Collection 026 - Poetry & Prose by Various - thw

1) It's traditional to mention the language. I like how you're using idiomatic Arabic instead of literal translations of the English boilerplate. Please work in something like "read in Arabic" in any way that sounds good to your ear. 2) (0:08, 3:34) please cut out the book title, volume and edition...

The piece is titled: الكذب al-Kathib (which literally translates to "lying" (as in not being truthful)) Forgot to mention: could you also give us a few keywords for this work? Thanks, Michael I'm not very good with those :mrgreen: but here: المجتمع، الكذب، النفاق، society, lying, hypocrisy,

Re: [OPEN]Multilingual Short Works Collection 023 - thw

I'm not sure what you mean exactly by tags, but the poem talks about how one should be sad over some unfortunate events that happen to them, for life is ever changing; one day can be be full of happiness, the next full of sadness. He also urges one to be patient and to persevere. He ends the poem w...

ok this is the author page I created now: https://librivox.org/author/14646
it was searchable with simply inputting "shafi'i".

If you want to elaborate a text for the biography, you can tell me, I can still change that.

Sonia
The biography is beautifully succinct as it is. Thank you!

Re: [OPEN]Multilingual Short Works Collection 023 - thw

If not, perhaps we should use a version without special characters, Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafi'i, or enter it as an alternate spelling to facilitate search, if that's possible. yes I think maybe a spelling without diacriticals would be best. And we can use tags, just give me a few suggestions, and...

Re: [OPEN]Multilingual Short Works Collection 023 - thw

There's also the question of using special characters in the Latin alphabet version. It's unlikely that users would use those special characters while searching. I don't know how special characters are handled by the Librivox search engine. If it will retrieve an entry cataloged as "al-Shāfiʿī" whe...

Re: [BIO] A Boys' Life of Booker T. Washington by C.W. Jackson-Leni

Hello,

I'd like to claim "Making Speeches," section 10, please.

It's my first time recording, and AnasYousef would be fine as the name posted. :)

OK I'm new to this. Do I start recording, or is there something else to do first?
